The Guru's view of Gurbani

sur nar thin kee baanee gaavehi koe n maettai bhaaee 3

Their Banis are sung by the angelic beings, and no one can erase them, O Siblings of Destiny! 3
Guru Amar Daas Ji Siree Raag 67

avagath baan shhodd mrith ma(n)ddal tho paashhai pashhuthaanaa 4

You have forsaken the Bani, the Word of the Immortal Lord, in this mortal world; in the end, you shall regret and repent. 4


The Word of His Bani belongs to Him; in Him, it is diffused.
Guru Amar Daas Ji Raag Gauree 160

The blind, self-willed manmukh does not understand the Shabad; he does not know the Word of the Guru's Bani,
Guru Amar Daas Ji Raag Dhanaasree 665

vaahu vaahu poorae gur kee baanee
Waaho! Waaho! Blessed, blessed is the Word of the Perfect Guru's Bani.
Guru Amar Daas Ji Raag Soohee 754

It is the Sikh belief that:

WHO has the power therefore to change Gurbani? To doubt Rag Mala, to doubt Chaupai Sahib, to doubt Dasam Granth, to doubt Bhai Gurdas Vara and Kabitts? If the Guru is perfect, his bani is perfect. Nobody has the power according to Gurbani to modify the words of the Guru. Giani Sobha Singh a paid agent, died with a maggot infestation in his mouth. He begged the Panth for forgiveness. See Raga Mala Gurbani Hai, Dam Dami Taksal.
It is clear that Neo-Sikhs, like Bhasauria, missionaries, and AKJ, view the Adi Guru Granth Sahib Ji as a book, rather than Pargat Guru Ka Deh, and Param Jot Saroop. Which are core Sikh beliefs.
